Information about Shellshock: Nam '67

Shellshock: Nam '67 (SSN67) is a third-person combat game for PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Microsoft Windows. It was released on sep. 10, 2004 (13 years ago), after the initial date of Jun. 25, subsequently pitching it against fellow Vietnam War game Conflict: Vietnam. A sequel, Shellshock 2: Blood Trails, was released in 2009 (8 years ago).

Overview

A game called Shellshock was released for Windows by Eidos Interactive, developed by Core Design, in 1996 (21 years ago). Apart from the name, there is no connection between the two games.

The game was developed by Guerilla Games, who would later on develop the highly popular Killzone (5 walls), a Playstation 2 first person shooter, and its sequel for the Playstation 3.

The game's title screen music is a version of the classic Bo Diddley rhythm & blues song "Who Do You Love" recorded by the UK blues rock outfit, Juicy Lucy.

Story

The game begins in Saigon 1967 (50 years ago). A helicopter full of fresh recruits landed and dismounted. Two soldiers, Kowalski and Walker were picked by a CO to join an air assault to overrun a VC camp near Kontum. The soldiers included a guy named Short Time (real name: Gordon) were commanded under Lt. O'Brien and Tomkins seized the camp and occupied it with the rest of the company.

The group then takes on many missions from clearing out villages, seizing an old fort and defend it from the VietCong. As the game progresses, one by one, the group members die. New veteran SF soldiers, Ramirez, Tick Tock, and Eyeball are later introduced and Walker joined SF. The Spec Ops takes on subversive, rescue, and assault missions.

The game ends with only Cal, Walker and another ARVN soldier named Monty survived the group and the rest of the group were dead. Walker ends his tour of duty and continues a second tour of duty.

Reception

It was hyped as a gritty, realistic war game but garnered disdain from critics and gamers for its clunky gameplay and poorly enacted cutscenes, that failed to live up to its marketing hype. It was also both praised and criticised by critics for the games graphic violence.

Shellshock: Nam '67 has sold over 900,000 copies.
